Based on the callus, it is a pantherina. Based on other aspects it is a lamelligera....
Darwin defined species as "arbitrarily given for the sake of convenience to a set of individuals closely resembling each other."

Basing a species on morphology only lead to confusion and endless discussions, small changes in environment can lead to substantial morphological changes without much genetic drift. Four species have been described of the cornu-cervi complex on Borneo; lamilligera, borneensis, cornu-cervi and pantherina. I bet that most of the specimens on Borneo are mixes of these four descriptions.
